not fished with two flies proper.i
if mullet fishing ,would you use a heavy fly on the point or on the dropper.

if you have the heavier fly on the dropper does it make the lighter fly rise.

Hi Mick. Having a fly on the point which is heavier than the fly on a dropper helps to turn the cast over and get the flies to land neatly on the water.
Typical mullet flies, such as the diawl bach, ghost buster or flexi-shrimp are light in construction because they need to travel with the current in shallow water to where the fish are feeding. Therefore, it is possible to swap their positions on the cast without affecting turn over. When fishing water of 8" deep or less I put the ghost buster on the point as it is quite buoyant and helps to keep the dropper fly higher in the water. If the water is more than 8" deep then I put a diawl bach on the point and the ghost buster on the dropper. Cheers, Colin

Never tried them Mick, as maggots don't really feature at the marks I fish. They are more common further west, such as where Mike Ladle fishes in Dorset. Pop a Ghost Buster and a Diawl bach on your leader and you won't go far wrong.
Don't forget we have a date to go Gar fishing :)
